Women and democracy in Texas: winning the right to vote was only half the battle

Our co-founders shared their opinion on women in Texas politics for this special feature by the Caller Times. 

“I think that it's a long process to break down the prejudices that people have against women serving in elected office, or any other decision-making position for that matter. But I do think that it is happening. And it's not slowing down. We don't see less women running for office in 2019 than we do in 2018.
”-​ Brooke López

Opinion Pieces

As a team, we produce relevant research to the community. Occasionally, we present our research findings and written features in opinion pieces for local news outlets. Below are our published articles.

Why storytelling could be the key to getting more women elected

"We noticed that the information we were seeking about the day-to-day campaign operations were intertwined with each individual candidate’s story — we were gathering information that was untapped. For example: when a woman runs for office in El Paso, her advice for successful campaigns can look drastically different from the advice we hear out of Dallas."

Want to communicate data better? Try the power of storytelling

"Interventions that focus on electing women are rarely expanded beyond the federal level.  Programs don’t cater their tactics to unique regions or even states, but instead, introduce nationwide practices to get more women elected. An updated approach that tackles the obstacles preventing women candidates from running and winning on a localised level is needed."

Collin County voters must begin opening their ballots to the possibility of diversity

"While Collin County leads the Lone Star state in gender parity, the county falls behind in other avenues of diverse representation. In the 2016 Presidential election, voters turned the county purple with 58% of residents voting Republican and 41% of residents voting Democratic yet there are currently zero Democratic elected officials; all countywide officials are Republican."
